a master's in public policy. i moved to washington and worked first for congressman durbin who is now the majority whip in the senate but at the time he had just been elected to the house in 1982. a very close election. 1982 you will hear me talk about a lot of political changes over the years and 1982 was one of those big political years, the first midterm election after president reagan was elected. the country was in huge recession in 1982. i don't remember the exact number but an incredible number of democrats defeated long-term republican incumbents in the house and they refer to it as the class of '82. congressman durbin was part of that class. .. i went from the durbin office, i actually moved out to omaha, nebraska, with you i'm from massachusetts and had always lived in the east, so definitely a big change, but it was also fascinating. it was 1988 senate race, the incumbent was an appointed senator, the long-term incumbent had passed away and the republican governor had replaced him with senator david carn and i was working for the democrat who ran against him, former governo
, not leading. and tim kaine said -- let's go to john heilemann in washington, d.c. what was your reaction to the speech last night? >> you know, joe, i kind of agree with you, and in some sense with almost everything all of those people said. the speech felt to me that it had something for everybody in it, and it let me feeling like there was a little bit of a grab bag quality to it. it's an interesting window into the white house's thinking. to me, the big question about the speech going in, was it going to reflect an assessment on the white house's part on the wake of everything that's happened over the last weeks and months, that they needed to make a dramatic mid course correction? and there was nothing about the speech that suggested that was the case. a lot of talking, small adjus adjustments to the left, small adjustments to the right. i don't think you will say a year ago that that's the moment that they seized the reins and went one direction or another. and it's interesting to me, because i don't think they think they are in big trouble. >> i think you're right. but wouldn't you

-- blow to democrats in washington. that means no more supermajority for democrats. the option to push through legislation with zero gop support, it's gone. senator-elect brown says he is eager to get to work in washington. >> i think it's important that we hit the ground running because there are some very important issues facing our country, and i've always had, contrary to, you know, the campaign's over now, and now we have to focus on solving problems, and i've had great working relationships with the delegation, and i'm looking forward to getting down there as quickly as i can. jamie: so what will happen in washington? we go to fox news chief political correspondent carl cameron who is live in boston. he sounds, brown, like he is beginning to push to be seated immediately. could that? >> there's going to be some delays, but the senator-elect is going to head down to washington tomorrow, he should be there late in the morning, and he plans to meet with the current interim senator occupying the seat he'll soon take and john kerry. they are all democrats. but it'll only be a short vi

the last few days are concerns about all the regulation that seems to be coming out of washington, the potential regulation that could levee heavy taxes on banks and financial services. we pointed out that the obama new bank tax is probably going to add $100 billion in new taxes to those banks. if you go back and look at what's in frank's own legislation, there's something in there for the resolution fund that would raise about $150 billion to $200 billion in taxes on a lot of these financial services companies just to make sure that if there is a big problem, again, it's a way of taking care of itself, almost like an fdic. still, you add up all those numbers and you're talking about $200 billion to $300 billion in new taxes in money that would be coming out of the capital markets. we asked barney frank if that was a concern to him. listen in to what he had to say about that. >> you know, to get two years' worth of bonuses, it is extraordinary. apparently when they pay each other these enormous bonuses, that has no affect on their ability to lend. but a tax of one-tenth that amoun
washington's next move is going. and so we said let's just freeze domestic discretionary spending at last year's level. my goodness, every small business owner, every family in this country is having to go through that exercise and frankly is having to cut, not just freeze. and in the same way, the suggestion that perhaps republicans wouldn't support transparency and even playing field and regulations that will control the amount of leverage on wall street, that's silly. of course we support efforts like that. but what we do know is that this administration -- and frankly the majority in congress has been very slow in getting the message out to auditors, regulators in the field that they should be reflecting the sentiments that the secretary of treasury and chairman of the federal reserve has said, which is we need to turn back to some sense of normalcy in the assessment of risk because we all know this country has been built on entrepreneurialism, on opportunity. it is not that we have seen our prosperity come from this government. that's where really, madam speaker, the differences lie,
